ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Evan Garr is an upcoming violinist in the Jazz and Fusion arena. Although prominently being locally known in the Detroit area and throughout Michigan, his vision of the jazz violin, like his predecessors, has taken him abroad.

Garr was born on December 28, 1985 in Detroit, Michigan. In a way, he was born into a musical family. His father played trumpet during grade school and his mother played piano; however, neither stuck with it. Garr is the first in his family to go far with a musical instrument.

Although being classically trained, Garr grew up listening to jazz. Heavily influenced by his family’s love for jazz, Garr began teaching himself the essence of jazz after only four years of formal training. After leaving the classical field and its instruction, Garr found himself playing jazz at different functions and venues throughout Detroit and its surrounding areas. One day, at a concert given by world renowned violinist Regina Carter, Garr’s uncle’s smooth talk gained him the privilege of playing on stage with Carter the very next day at a Jazz instructional concert given at Cass Technical High School. He was given the opportunity to play one song with her, in which he definitely left his mark. Later on, he was asked to perform at a ceremony in Comerica Park the night before it opened to the public.

Garr has recently played in a concert at the Henry Ford performing arts theater. Some years earlier, he also had the privilege of taking lessons with jazz violinist Jerald Daemyon and as he puts it, “the extraordinary rare privilege of meeting and talking with Jean-Luc Ponty.” After hearing a demo CD about 3 years ago, Mr. Ponty, via e-mail, told Garr that he was “a promising player”, however he encouraged him to continue to find his own style. With years of work, an interesting vision and an upcoming CD release, the world will see that Evan Garr has done just that.

very, very, relaxating. "Soothing"
The music from this CD is truly smooth and enjoyable.

Sis Ellen Tompkins, Moross Cong

Excellent, very relaxing
I like the first song the best "The New beginning", but all of them are good. The Title is just right because thats just what you want to do is "Chill Out". Congradulation on an excellent CD.

Very soothing and refreshing at the same time.
I especially enjoyed True Love and Song To Mom. I looking forward to my own copy of The Chill Out Album.

Sunshine

Smooth Jazz that's draws out your emotions.
All tracks are my favorite especially (2,5,7,9,10). To explain how much I enjoy this CD, I listed to it everyday and I have everyone that come into my home listen also. That's one reason why I've purchase 3 copies. I will be first in line when his new release comes out. And two thumbs up also to Ben King Jr. EXCELLENT JOB Fellas.

Great CD! Sounds just like I saw him in person at a formal dinner!
The CD is superb! Until now, I've never appreciated how the violin can be played in the jazz genre' and it is awesome!
